Guilt-Free Tuna Salad

Easy Dairy-Free Tuna Salad recipe You know I’m busy when I resort to making tuna salad for dinner…

I have a big (exciting!) project in the works that I can’t wait to share with you! It’s been taking up my every waking minute lately, so we’ve been having many a tuna dinner.

Tuna is one of those things that can be ready in 10 minutes flat, and with the right added ingredients, tastes fantastic. It’s loaded with protein and the fresh ingredients bring fiber, vitamins and minerals. Win, win, win.

I really love adding fresh fruit to tuna salad. The contrast between salty tuna and sweet, crunch fruit is divine.

No need for gloppy mayonnaise or even plain yogurt. In this recipe I dress the salad very simply with coconut oil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Try it out and let me know what you think 🙂

    We all LOVED this recipe. I will definitely use the ingredients in all my tuna salad sandwiches from now on – so healthy!
    I didn’t have grapes – so used celery instead and spicy mustard.

    5 stars!

    This looks incredible. How long would it keep in the fridge after being made?

      You can keep this in the fridge for up to two days. Happy Cooking!
